Hi! My name is Carrie. I’m 40 years old and have been married for 18 years. My stepdaughter and her husband just blessed us with our first grandson, who I am head over heals in love with. I went to school to be a teacher, but currently work in accounts payable for a private company. I live in Ohio, but my heart belongs to the Smoky Mountains and hope to move there eventually. I have four dogs that I talk about too much, one of which is on her way to becoming a certified therapy dog.

The product(s) featured in this post was provided to me free of cost to me for inclusion in the holiday gift guide. This post has not been monetarily compensated. Please note that, as always, any personal opinions reflected in this post are my own.

2016 Mom Knows It All HOLIDAY GIFT GUIDE - Talent Not Included Computer Game

GIFT IDEA: Talent Not Included Computer Game powered by Steam

PRICE: $12.99

PURCHASE: online at the Steam store

We are a household full of gamers and we have an eclectic collection containing a variety of PC, console and app games (to be honest, I’m the best gamer and the hubby was always telling dear step-daughter to “go get Carrie” when they got stuck on a bad guy). Talent Not Included is a fun mashup suitable for pretty much any age as long as they have the cognitive ability to play. It reminds of a mash up of old school Mario Brothers, Zelda and Castlevania as far as game play. The vivid colors and graphics are attention grabbing and you will spend a fun couple of hours immersing yourself in the game. It is played as if you are a character in a play, the set changes around you and you will navigate the baddies while picking up points to increase your score. The over the top reactions from the crown will goad you to keep trying harder.

Set in the fantasy land of Notthatmuchfurther, Talent Not Included tells the story of three monsters: Zordok, Derp, and Kevin, all three huge fans of slaughter, bloodbaths, and Shakespeare. One night, as they were bored out of their minds, they decided to put on their own play. Unfortunately, nothing went as planned…

That’s mostly because Zot, a demonic critic hired for the occasion, chose three mediocre actors with strong personalities, hoping to sow hell on stage for his own and the public’s amusement.

Break a leg! As you will be playing these actors in hopes of making a nice profit out of your marvelous performance!

Come on! Show’s this way!
